Joan Allen taps into maternal fears in 'Room' and the upcoming 'The Family' - Los Angeles Times

Three-time Oscar nominee Joan Allen brings warmth and light to the often wrenching drama "Room," about a mother and son held for years in captivity. Playing opposite Brie Larson and 8-year-old Jacob Tremblay, Allen is the grandmother struggling to reconnect with her long-lost daughter while easing a traumatized boy into the real world. Allen credits her ease in the role with Larson's full immersion in her own and the humanity and kindness of director Lenny Abrahamson. More recently, Allen has transitioned to TV as the headmistress of a boys' school in the dark Netflix series "The Killing" and leads the cast of ABC's forthcoming drama "The Family. " During a recent conversation, Allen was down-to-earth, reveling in the newfound stability of her life on a locally New York-shot TV show. So for "Room," what did you do first to prepare. I wanted to speak with [kidnap victim] Jaycee Dugard's mother Terry Probyn. I did a little reaching out [and found] they've created a foundation for helping families reunite. But I heard they might be making their own story and really didn't want to get involved in this particular telling. There's this saying, "A family is only as well as its sickest member. " And something like this is so damaging to an entire family system. I wanted to bring that part of it. It was interesting to hear Terry Probyn say, "It's hard and it takes a lot of time and a lot of help from people. " It's a huge chunk of your life lost and the clock maybe stops on some level. I've had moments even when my daughter was little, I was in a mall and I turned around and she wasn't there and I just remember the amount of panic and fear. With Brie you had some tough scenes to illustrate that complexity of coming back together. We didn't spend that much time together. The characters hadn't seen each other for eight years. It wasn't going off the rails. It wasn't like she was rebelling to the degree she was going to be a runaway. Brie was so fully immersed into the character and I was so respectful of how she had prepared. When you're working with somebody that good, you say, "I just believe the circumstance. So, this TV show that you're doing interestingly is also about a missing child. When I got the script for the pilot a few months after shooting "Room," I said, "I don't know. " In "The Family," my character politicizes that experience and that's very different than in "Room. We shot a scene where I see [the missing son] for the first time and it was like, "I know what this feels like. Source: www.latimes.com
